Visited this Italian restaurant after a long car journey. We were both delighted with the quality of the food and at very reasonable prices. Seafood pasta was very fresh and hot...perfect for our needs. Place has a nice atmosphere and the staff attentive.

Having read earlier reviews which were quite favourable booked at short notice for mothers day (same day) and when we got there found out why it was so easy to book. The staff and service was friendly and helpful but the quality of the food was very average
